everybody to understand this is hard. because the technology of the nuclear cycle, you can get off the internet -- the knowledge of creating a nuclear weapons is already out there. and iran is a large country and it is a relatively wealthy country, and so we have to take seriously the possibility that they are going to try to get a nuclear weapon. that's what this whole exercise is about. having said that, if you look at the history, by the time we got an agreement with north korea, they essentially already had a nuclear weapon. with respect to pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask, why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naÏve, what i try to describe to them is not the choice b

have tried to transfer the technology and know-how that we have acquired from 40 years of fighting drug traffickers and terrorism. we have been fighting organized crime and we are now using that know-how to help the caribbean and the islands and central america, and we are now also promoting the integration through initiatives like the ,acific alliance with mexico -- a best-peru performing economies of latin america. we got together and decided to integrate more. things are working quite well. it he has become an attraction for many investors and for the world. we will continue on with that initiative and try to integrate the whole continent. therefore, i think we are doing well on the economic side. we are doing well on the social side. we are performing well on the international front. but of course, the cherry on the pie would be the peace process. if we are able to finish this peace process, then i think the future for columbia and the region would be even much better. the question i put to good people -- i put to the people is, if we have achieved those results in the middle o

down to $25,000 because of technological developments. last year it was down to $3,000 maybe $4,000 to sequence an entire 3 billion base genome. that represents a million-fold decline in price in less than a decade. and i don't think there is any other technology that can boast that kind of a decline in cost in so little time. now for about the cost of an m.r.i. we can get your entire d.n.a. sequence. and uplike an m.r.i. result your sequence won't change. this gives us a tremendous amount of information about each and every human who is sequenced. now tens and hundreds of thousands of people are being sequenced in various mostly biomedical studies. the very first human family to be sequenced is a family from outside. utah. it happens to be my wife and her children. we had an exercise in personal genomics that turned out to be personally fulfilling. here is the double helix and bases appearing appearing in pairs. occasionally an alteration occurs and this is what key call a mutation. we were able to estimate the rate of mutation and how often do these actually occur? each time we re

everybody to understand this is hard. because the technology of the nuclear cycle -- you can get off the internet -- the knowledge of creating a nuclear weapons is already out there. and iran is a large country and it is a relatively wealthy country, and so we have to take seriously the possibility that they are going to try to get a nuclear weapon. that's what this whole exercise is about. having said that, if you look at the history, by the time we got an agreement with north korea, they essentially already had a nuclear weapon. with respect to pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask, why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naïve, what i try to describe to them is not the choi

social compact began to unravel. technology made it easier for companies to do more with less, eliminating certain job occupations. a more competitive world lets companies ship jobs anywhere. and as good manufacturing jobs automated or headed offshore, workers lost their leverage, jobs paid less and offered fewer benefits. as values of community broke down, and competitive pressure increased, businesses lobbied washington to weaken unions and the value of the minimum wage. as a trickle-down ideology became more prominent, taxes were slashed for the wealthiest, while investments in things that make us all richer, like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither. and for a certain period of time, we could ignore this weakening economic foundation, in part because more families were relying on two earners as women entered the workforce. we took on more debt financed by a juiced-up housing market. but when the music stopped, and the crisis hit, millions of families were stripped of whatever cushion they had left. and the result is an economy that's become profoundly unequal
